as common as to dogs, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Most people with cat allergies react to Fel d 1, a protein found on cat skin, although other cat allergens are found on the fur, in saliva and even in their urine, reports a study in Te Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Te tiny Fel d 1 protein attached to a


piece of airborne cat hair or skin can linger in the air for hours—much longer than


a similarly released dog allergen. It’s also sticky, readily attaching to human skin and clothing, and can even easily transfer to cat- free public locations such as a classroom. Male cats tend to produce more of this
